5✨ Todd gets a motorcycle that he has always been wanting, and the Wakefields loss someone to cause Liz pause in riding with him. They look at the pros and cons of riding a bike. As a person who almost lost her husband to a careless driver and lost a father-in-law I felt very deeply in this book. The ending is not what anyone wanted to hear, but it can happen and caution should always be used. #SeriesLove

5✨ I didn‘t like all the books in the series, but this ending was the best possible one I could have imagined for Mia. I‘m glad there was not a lot of adult content and more family content. We even find out where a long lost person went. It was an emotional roller coaster that I wouldn‘t have liked any other way. It is an end to a series I‘ve slowly worked my way through. I will miss Mia, but so glad I got to read her story. #SeriesLove

5✨Definitely not easy to put down to eat dinner. I started this knowing it was about soccer which I have enjoyed. It was a suggestion at the beginning of the year for my #12month challenge. It starts with a soccer game that does not end in the mains favor. He is then selected with 299 others to become the best player to be trained for the World Cup striker position.

4✨Normally, I struggle with the second book in a series. This time was very different where I‘m confident I enjoyed this more than the original. Lena is lost in a world she wanted to enter with Alex. Now that he‘s gone she needs to find her own path. She makes new friends and she discovers more as she looks at the other side of the Delirium. It goes back and forth between the then and now to give us background in how she evolves. #SeriesLove

3✨ A book of novellas about one place. This location called Goblin is all sorts of dark and twisty. We have different POV for each novella and some were more engaging than others. I was hoping for I little bit more from this, but not all the story stories disappointed me.

I did DNF this, but only because it was lacking something. What that something was I can‘t really explain, because I was rooting for the characters. Bo has a reputation because of her mom who needs taken care of herself, which definitely was not fair. Then Agnes is legally blind with a friend who thinks she‘s a burden and parents who are afraid for her to do anything. I did ready the end to see how it turned out and I was mostly satisfied.

5✨ Sailor Moon has always been a favorite of mine since I first saw it in high school. This edition was too beautiful to pass up, and it brought a familiar nostalgia with some updated/corrected translations from what I remember. I‘m excited to get the others in this set because they are all beautiful! That rainbow shimmer is on the whole cover to make it shine even more! 🥰💛

4✨ What a fun read! We find another girl from Kansas who has a pretty crumby life enter Oz. However, it‘s not the Oz we all know it‘s dark, depressing, and ruled by a power hungry Dorothy who, you guessed it, must die. She finds that not everyone is as black and white as they first appeared, and the bad guys might actually be good?⬇️ #Roll100 @PuddleJumper

Roary47 Either way there is quite a bit of gory details that were normally fine for me, but seemed over the top in many situations to lower my score on this a little. I completed enjoyed the fresh take on a classic though and am excited to finish the series. 3w

5✨All of a sudden everyone over the age of 22 gets a box with a string inside. On 22nd birthdays one arrives. These strings are all different sizes, but soon they find out the string is a representation of how long this person will live. Prejudices arise, to open or not to open debates start happening, and really big thoughts are displayed throughout. If I didn‘t have to work and sleep it never would have seen a bookmark. @Littlewolf1 #HometownBC

3✨ I was really into this book for the mystery of what happened. Alice lost her memory when she hit her head at the gym. She cannot remember 10years of her life! In that time a lot changed especially her relationships with others. I liked the old Alice verses who she became, but as the mystery unfolded I can see why she turned up that way. I enjoyed the ending. #roll100 @PuddleJumper Also my#BookSpin @TheAromaofBooks

3✨ A lot happened in this book so narrowing it down is not easy. Pa decided they needed to move, so they they packed all their things up and went into “Indian territory”. They had a lot of close calls in not getting seriously hurt, and a lot of other situations were terrifying! They are definitely tougher than I am.

This is a dystopian style story where they are stuck at the top of the mountain mainly mining to get food rations from the “line keeper“. Everyone here is unable to hear and they are now slowly losing their sight as well. Fei suddenly gains her hearing after a dream and she finds herself on an adventure down the mountain. She and her companion find more than they bargained for at the base of the mountain, and need to hide that they “cannot hear“.

4✨I was very engaged in this story, but lost interest in the alternate dimensions. The name of the series makes sense now though, and a lot of other situations in previous books do too. It leaves you on a cliff hanger so I am glad I have the next book ready to go.

3✨ I was not as impressed with this book as the first one. However, I did learn a lot about home security systems and Jane is still really amazing. I also enjoyed that there was a connection on a deeper, emotional level between Jane and the victims mom. It‘s nice to read about a character that is not perfect in every way, but tries to help others.

5✨I could not put this down! It was so expertly crafted I could not tell it was written by two authors. You go through 2 POVs and after the first couple chapters one character goes forward in time and the other goes backwards. There is a strong LGBTQ+ message in the book which I believe was tastefully done for education and understanding of the individual(s) that are seen. Murder mystery, courtroom scenes, flashbacks, deep family history.

3✨ I wish I could have given this more time than I did, but I really liked it. A young woman who is born on the wrong side of the tracks is at the wrong place at the wrong time. She hides by setting herself into a nursing school that she hates at first. She is out of her element, but sees things differently than her peers. Naturally, her past catches up to her and she gets in a sticky situation. Will likely re-read this one day.

3✨ This book redeemed the series a bit for me. The phrases they use are very overused, but the storyline is fun. Mia is predictable and some of the situations that happen, but I‘m going to chalk that up to me wanting the story to play out the way it is going. One more to go with a fun concept!

I was able to read two essays which had a lot to do with science. As a person interested in science it was a lot of what I already knew. I skipped through a bit and didn‘t see it getting better. I don‘t want to say that the material in this book is bad, but definitely more of a reference book than a fun read through. I saw some connection to the church of LDS and Science, but basically stay curious and wonder is what I got before DNFing.
